A welcome coupling of well- and less well-known Britten. Both Clayton and Watkins are characterful and winning in the Serenade, while Szűcs is deeply impressive in the orchestral version of Lachrymae, one of the last projects Britten was able to undertake. Best of all is Soules in a suitably dazzling Young Apollo, a work we hear all too little. The orchestral playing is fresh, lacking only the last degree of polish.
